CBDistillery has over one million satisfied customers, and it is easy to see why based on the emphasis the company puts on quality and education. It’s branded hashtag, #CBDMovement says it all. The company’s goal is to create a movement where everyone is informed about what CBD can do for them, understands its benefits and uses, and has affordable access to products that can help them live their best lives. 

The products made by CBDistillery cover the whole array of what most people are looking for, including CBD oils, CBD gummies, CBD topicals and even pet products. The company manages to carry something for everyone while keeping things organized and simple.

The company is involved with every step of the production process, from initial soil testing for its hemp farms, to designing convenient packaging that customers can clearly understand.

One area where this CBDistillery is lacking, however, is its availability of third-party lab results. You have to have a product in hand with a QR code in order to access a certificate of analysis, but we think customers should be able to see results before they invest.

CBDistillery has recently been working on overhauling its website and packaging to bring more clarity to its products and their benefits, and you can also find a host of educational material on the site. The free download, The Ultimate CBD User Guide, has nearly 40k downloads and will walk you through everything you need to know about CBD.

Whether you are just getting started with CBD or you are already a pro, you will learn something from this guide and all the informative material on the website. 

Quick Summary

Pros:

  • Vertical seed to sale integration ensuring total oversight of quality and purity
  • Affordable prices
  • Plenty of informative material on website
  • Customer-focused products
  • Products available in full spectrum, broad spectrum and CBD isolate formulas

Cons:

  • CBD isolate selection is not as wide as other formulas within the brand
  • No guarantee of refund if dissatisfied with products

Background Information

CBDistillery was founded in 2016 by a group of Colorado natives who saw the growing interest in CBD and decided that the world needed access to information as well as quality, no-gimmick products.

The company has been awarded the Remedy Review Seal of Approval, and its products are favorites among critics, reviewers and customers alike. It has been recognized by top publications, including the New York Times, Forbes and USA Today, and is endorsed by athletes, MMA fighters, and bodybuilders.

Hemp sourcing is an important element in CBD production, and CBDistillery oversees all of the farming practices used for the hemp in its extracts. The company says it uses all natural farming methods to grow its non-GMO hemp, but there is no other information regarding exactly what that means.

It employs a CO2 extraction method for its full spectrum products, and an ethanol extraction process for its isolates. Before any products are shipped off to customers, they are all subject to third-party testing to verify quality and purity, but customers can’t see the results before they have the product in hand. 

Shipping and Returns

CBDistillery ships anywhere in the US at no charge for orders $75 and over. For any orders totaling less, standard UPS rates apply. The company promises that your order will be shipped within 2 – 4 business days after your payment is processed, and you can expect to receive it within 5 – 7 business days after that. 

We placed our order for CBD oil at the beginning of the week, and CBDistillery took two days to get our package shipped. Once it was in the mail, it took another six days to reach us. This is a little bit longer than we like to wait for our CBD, but was within the time promised.

You can request a refund for any unopened and unused products within 7 days of receipt. If you have opened or used your product, or if you change your mind after 7 days, you are out of luck. If, however, your return falls within the stringent guidelines, then you can expect a refund minus shipping costs.

CBDistillery’s Products

CBD Oil

Full and broad spectrum formulas are available in multiple concentrations, and the company makes a 1:1 CBD+CBG tincture as well. All formulas are made with third-party tested CBD oil and MCT oil for maximum absorption, they are unflavored, and prices range from $35.00 to $240.00.

Full Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture ($35.00 – $240.00) – CBDistillery’s full spectrum CBD oil tinctures have the greatest dosing flexibility out of all the company’s products, and they come in concentrations of 500mg, 1000mg, 2500mg and 5000mg of CBD per bottle. 

Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture ($40.00 – $140.00) – Broad spectrum CBD has all the goodness of an array of cannabinoids and terpenes, without the THC that is present in full spectrum products. CBDistillery’s broad spectrum CBD oil tincture comes in concentrations of 500mg, 1000mg or 2500mg of CBD per bottle.

CBD+CBG 1:1 Tincture ($75.00) – CBG is purported to be the cannabinoid that starts it all. From CBG, CBD and other cannabinoids derive. CBDistillery has created a 1:1 blend that gives you a healthy dose of both, with this CBD+CBG tincture that delivers 500mg of each per bottle.

CBD Capsules

Rated with four-and-a-half stars, CBDistillery softgels are made with busy lifestyles in mind. While some people enjoy the ritual of taking their daily dose of CBD oil, other people just want to get their CBD and get on with their day. These capsules are the perfect way to quickly get your precisely-measured dose and keep moving.

They contain 30mg of concentrated CBD in either full or broad spectrum formulas and MCT oil, encapsulated in gelatin. Prices range from $60.00 to $125.00 for bottles of 30 or 60 capsules.

Full Spectrum CBD Softgels ($60.00 – $115.00) – The full spectrum CBD softgels contain whole plant CBD extract. They contain 30mg of CBD in each capsule, and are available in 30 or 60-count bottles.

Broad Spectrum CBD Softgels ($65.00 – $125.00) – Broad spectrum products are generally a little more expensive than full spectrum products because their processing is more intensive.

Most methods require first isolating CBD from the hemp plant, then reintroducing the other cannabinoids and terpenes one at a time back into the isolated CBD extract. These broad spectrum softgels contain 30mg of CBD and come in bottles of 30 or 60.

CBD Gummies

CBD gummies are a convenient and discreet way to get your CBD no matter where you are or what time of day it is. The gummies made by CBDistillery are a new and improved recipe.

Each gummy is made with 30mg of CBD isolate, and they are vegan, gluten-free, allergen-free and kosher to boot! You can find these sweet little treats in a standard formula and a nighttime formula for additional effects, and each version is $55.00. Buy a pack with both and save $20.00.

CBDistillery CBD Gummies ($55.00) – These gummies are simply CBDistillery’s new recipe, made with 30mg of CBD isolate, to keep you smiling throughout your day. Price listed is for a bottle of 25.

CBDistillery CBD Nighttime Gummies ($55.00) – When you find yourself tossing and turning, struggling to get a good night’s sleep, take these nighttime gummies from CBDistillery.

Each bottle contains 25 gummies, packed with 30mg of CBD isolate and 1.5mg of melatonin, to have you drifting off to dreamland before you know it.

CBD Topicals

CBDistillery makes CBD topicals that are sure to meet your needs, whether you are looking for something unique to add to your skincare routine, or you want a fast-acting product to soothe sore, tired muscles.

The company makes salves and creams to fit your preferences, and you can find them infused with full or broad spectrum formulas. Prices range from $6.00 to $50.00.

CBD Lip Balm ($6.00) – Whether you are looking to pucker up with someone special or you just want to protect your lips from the elements, this lip balm is a great choice.

With a blend of moisturizing oils, along with 25mg of broad spectrum CBD extract, green tea leaf extract, spearmint leaf extract and vanilla, the only thing missing from this juicy balm is protection from the sun. But the balm is perfect for moisture and general protection.

CBDol Topical CBD Salve & CBDefine Skin Care Cream ($50.00) – These two products are listed together here, because the website does not clarify what the difference between them in purpose is.

They both have similar ingredients, though the CBDol Topical CBD Salve does have a longer list of plant extracts and essential oils. Both contain 500mg of full spectrum CBD, and instructions for use indicate that they are both intended for localized relief.

CBDol Relief Stick ($40.00) – The CBDol Relief Stick is intended for on-the-go relief without the mess of lotions and creams. It is made with a broad spectrum CBD formula containing 500mg of CBD and a cooling menthol for extra relief.

Pet Products

CBDistillery hasn’t forgotten about your furry friends. They have created a formula just for your pets, containing full spectrum CBD suspended in a cold-pressed hemp seed oil to help them feel their best.

CBD Pet Tincture ($20.00 – $38.00) – You can find the pet tinctures offered by CBDistillery in 150mg and 600mg per bottle concentrations. Find their suggested dose in the “How to Use” section on the product page, then use the graduated dropper to give your pets the perfect amount of CBD, no matter their size.

Lab Results

We had CBDistillery’s 500mg full spectrum CBD oil tested at an independent lab to confirm that we are providing our readers with the most accurate information possible in our review of this company. We were delighted to find that the company’s CBD concentration fell within a rate of 97 percent accuracy, and that there were no pesticide or solvent residuals present in the sample.

We were, however, a bit disappointed with the fact that this full spectrum formula falls a little flat in its cannabinoid profile. Full spectrum oils should contain the minor cannabinoids CBN and CBG, in addition to CBC. This is what produces the entourage effect. This does not diminish the quality of the pure CBD present in the oil, it simply indicates a an incomplete full spectrum formula.

Website Experience

The CBDistillery website is one of the clearest, easiest-to-use websites as far as CBD companies go. Each product page makes clear the ingredients, the CBD formula, and CBD concentration both per package and per dose.

The website is in the midst of a rebranding project, so some of the old product pages and labels are still up, but this will eventually be fixed and there will be less confusion. The website has a product search feature that makes finding what you are looking to purchase easier, and you can also filter your search by CBD formula, strength and category.

The blog is one of the most professionally put together in the industry, with posts citing sources and recent studies, and including educational material that is very useful. Unfortunately, however, the blog search does not work. The site also includes a live chat feature that can be used 24/7 to ask questions about products. 

Customer Service

CBDistillery was quick in responding to our email queries. There were strong indications that their reply was at least partially a template response, though.

Regardless, they answered all of our questions in detail and had a very positive, encouraging tone. We would expect most people to have a pleasant experience with their customer support.

Final Verdict

CBDistillery has a great reputation, and its products are all considered to be among the best in the industry. The company puts emphasis on research, advocacy, access and education, making its website an excellent resource for information.

Each product has a page that includes clear descriptions regarding formula, concentration and ingredients, as well as recommendations for how to use it. One area where this company may be lacking is its level of transparency regarding hemp-growing practices and its third-party lab results.

Consumers should be able to know what they are purchasing before they make an investment, particularly with this company’s strict return policy of only seven days. CBDistillery offers products with good quality for a good price, but it definitely has some areas where it could improve its accessibility and make its customers more confident in their purchases.
